Hi all,

I have for trade a 16gb iphone 3GS locked to Orange. It was bought from Orange in November 2009 and is in excellent condition. It has had a screen protector, along with being kept in an Incipio feather case, since day 1.

Looking to trade for a 3DS and a game or 2.

Any questions please ask.

Is it black or white? I may be able to get hold of a new 3ds...

I know you have 20fb but would you be able to post first so I can check it over?

It's black mate. Meant to say, it's also boxed and comes with charger,etc. I'd be happy to post 1st to as you have plenty feedback. Let me know what you get your hands on and we can sort something out. Will get pics up when I finish work around 4pm. Cheers.
#4
Yeah mate. i'm fine with that. I should be able to get it by the weekend. But pending pictures I don't see why not.
#5
Also is it unlocked at all? what firmware / baseband is it on / is it jailbroken? cheers!

I will check all that after work mate about 4ish. Will get pics up too. What game/games are you throwing in the mix?

Hi Gaz, was just going to post my 3DS away to CeX at lunchtime, but I may be interested in trading for your phone if it is unlocked/you can get it unlocked as my wife would probably be interested in upgrading her current phone to an iPhone.

Would you consider selling for cash or are you just looking for a Trade. If you would consider a cash sale what is best price for collection in person within next 48hrs. Thanks.

Will look into an unlock Josh. Has been unlocked previously through jailbreak but is currently being used with an Orange sim.

Well, I'd need enough for a 3DS and game, so £200 cash on collection.

No problem buddy. I'm sure you could pick up a decent unlocked iPhone with your 3DS cash.

Interested in buying if unlocked :)

Thanks for the reply. Will wait until I see the pics you post later. I would be travelling from Stirling - where about do you stay?

I stay just off the Paisley cut off from the m77. Maybe about 40 mins drive.

Not too fussed about cash mate. If you can get me a new or nearly new 3DS and a decent game, its all yours.
#18
Can do :) just gonna wait and see the pics and its a done deal?

Don't want to get involved in a battle between two parties so I will back off if you prefer a Trade with a 3DS. However, it was my understanding that for all For Sale/Trade items then the member must have the aforementioned item in their possession. I could be wrong on this and the member might have it with them but the phrase " I should be able to get it by the weekend. " would suggest otherwise.

Would have thought £200 cash in your pocket and then buying brand new yourself from Tesco at £199 (including a game) or £174 from Priceminister would have been a better option. At least then you have peace of mind of purchasing yourself.

Thanks anyway and good luck with the trade. All the best.

I can see where you are coming from Stuart, and I hate messing folk about, but I haven't had a solid offer from either of you. I still don't know if Josh will accept the phone once I send to him or what game he is hoping to supply. On the other hand, you haven't said if £200 is acceptable if the phone is in the condition described.

I believe I am within my rights to accept your offer of £200, if you are making that offer, pending pics.

Josh, I don't know if I can be bothered sending you the phone, which will cost me money, and then having to wait for the 3DS to be delivered to me. Sorry if it seems I have messed you about.

Pics will now be up around 8ish since I am working late :(

Stuart, are you back in the mix at £200 collected?
#21
Okay well I'm here if you need me. I was gonna pick it up from work tomorrow but let me know before then if possible. Cheers.
#22
Pics up now :) Not the best, so I will describe the condition also. The back is in excellent condition with only a few scratches round the corners. The screen has a protector on, but rest assured there is not a mark underneath. There are also minor scratches down either side, made when the case has been taken off and put back on to change sim. There is no cracking at the charge port either.

The phone is not unlocked as I found when I tried a giffgaff sim. It is on firmware 3.1.3, so I believe an untethered unlock is possible.

Any more questions, please ask.

t0mm, I am just a bit weary of sending 1st and incurring a cost when I reckon I could easily get £200 for this and buy a new 3DS with my game of choice. Any suggestion around this? Also, what condition would the 3DS be and what game/games are you offering?

Are you interested in a 3DS with Ghost Recon, Rayman, Ridge Racer, Sims 3 or Super Monkey Ball?

I could also get an off peak return on the train with my railcard from Carisle to Glasgow Central to save the double special delivery which is £8.65 for +2kg.

It would be brand new and sealed.
Which game would you want. I'd be looking in the morning so could get any game.

I would want Street Fighter 4. Any more thoughts on my dilemma of sending 1st at my expense? If you are happy to pay for postage I will send 1st for you to check out, but it would then be your responsibility and expense to send back, if for any reason it did not meet your expectations.

How does that sound?

Out of interest, if you are getting 1 brand new then why not just give me the cash? I can only assume you are using vouchers for game, hmv, etc? If so, then will you provide me with the receipt if the deal goes ahead?

Would perhaps take Ghost Recon. Will wait to see if t0mm still wants this and get back to you.
Thanks for the interest.

Of course I would bring the receipt. You would also be able to return the console for £200 store credit and the game for ££28 store credit if traded in before 7th April. Peace of mind.

Was this from Game then? When would you be able to do this deal then if t0mm doesn't get back to me?

Sunday or Monday.

Sunday would be best as I am off and would be easy to get to central station. Was this from Game then?

Going to give t0mm until the end of tonight and then I will get back to you.

Couple of things to note. There are no earphones supplied with the phone and the sync cable has a few cuts in it. The actual wire inside the plastic casing is not frayed at all, and works perfectly, but thought it better mention this.

t0mm hasn't got back to me so I am happy to go ahead with intelligentlife's offer.

Yes, you mention it is firmware 3.1.3, and that you believe an untethered unlock is possible. This is jargon to me so can you explain what jailbreak means and what this means for. Does it stop you getting software updates?

If it can be updated to system iOS 4.3.1

Ok, spoke to Orange and it's £20 to get an official unlock as it's a PAYG handset. If you wanted this done I would like another game to cover this cost. You can choose the game as I would only be trading for Street Fighter anyway.

If not then I will look into a jailbreak and unlock. The only issue with this is if you were to update in the future it might cancel the jailbreak and unlock until new jailbreak software is released.

This might not be the case, but think you should know what might happen.

Why can't I pay Orange the £20? Or is the phone always going to be exlusively in your name?

I don't see a problem with you paying Orange mate. I phoned today and all they asked was for my mobile number and said I would need £20 and something pence credit on the PAYG sim to unlock it.

Best thing I could do is to update to 4.3.1, as requested, and jailbreak/unlock it myself. If you then were to have any problems in the future you could get Orange to unlock it at your expense.

How does that sound? I will also give you the paperwork sent to me by Orange. As for it being in my name, I don't think it is, as it is a PAYG.
